Summer Fashion Amazon Finds Under $21 (See My Outfits!)

Do you ever buy something really cute and later tell yourself you could have found a look-alike for way cheaper?  Amazon carries seriously cute, quality pieces for highly affordable prices.  I don’t know what took me so long to shop for clothes on Amazon!  I will be doing much more shopping with them, but it won’t break the bank.  Check out my summer fashion Amazon finds!  All under $21!

I’ve included summer items I already own, as well as some items that are in my cart and on my wishlist!

Lots of Tops!

A girl can never have too many tops, can she?!  Especially when they are so affordable.

This knotted cherry print button down is $13.99!  I usually wear a small in tops, but I followed the size guide and got a medium.  The size guides on Amazon are definitely useful!

More outfit details below…

TOP // HIGH-RISE SKINNY JEANS // CAT SATCHEL // ESPADRILLE WEDGES // ALMAY SMART SHADE LIPSTICK

Gingham, gingham, gingham!  I am so obsessed!  I have never had navy gingham before, and for $12.99, this top is a gem!  It has a smaller gingham print around the neckline and a keyhole detail in back.  Note:  This fabric doesn’t stretch, but I followed the size guide, and it fits perfectly.  Definitely size up! (Psst… Did you miss my post about the gingham trend?)

This next top calls for a few more photos, because it has so much movement and dimension!  It’s the perfect lightweight, boho summer top. Bonus:  It would make a great 4th of July outfit!

Comfiest. Dress. Ever.  If you don’t have a t-shirt dress in your wardrobe yet, let me introduce you to this formfitting, yet loose and flowy tunic dress.

My Affordable Leopard Wish List

Affordable Leopard Wish List
*Post may contain affiliate links.

leopard print scarf // leopard print cardigan (love that it’s black and gray) // Crystal Bezel & Metallic Strap Watch // Haircalf Pumps (The small heel size and straps are key for me!) // leopard phone case (Can you really ever have too many phone cases?) // fuzzy knit cardigan // wrap dress (40% off) // stemless leopard print wine glass (set of 4) // haircalf leopard belt // mini buckle crossbody bag ($19.99!) // leopard print scarf ($19!)

The Leopard Trend

Style trends and changes in season always inspire me to create fashion wish lists.  I’m really into the leopard trend this fall but don’t have nearly enough of the stylish print in my wardrobe.  And since leopard is kind of trendy, I don’t want to spend a fortune on it.  (I really wanted this cardigan, but then I noticed the price lol).

Actually, though, leopard does seem to come back into style every handful of years, so don’t be quick to clean it out of your closet next fall!  One of the few leopard items I have in my closet is a soft cardigan I bought 15 years ago!  I remember pulling it out about 5 years ago, and I cannot wait to start styling outfits around it again.  (It’s been unseasonably warm here.)

Oh, and wine glasses of any kind are always welcome in my house! 😉  Cheers!

My Affordable Wish List

Everything on my wish list, with the exception of the shoes and set of wine glasses is under $60.  On the top of my  list?  The soft and cozy leopard cardigan!  It’s from one of my favorite places to shop (Have you checked out my faves in my sidebar?)  What’s your favorite leopard item on the list?

SHOP THE POST

That’s what’s up in fashion.  I hope you like all of the affordable leopard pieces on my wish list!  Which trends are you currently loving? read more
